Week 2 Discussion (Identity and Affiliations) Week 2 (Ch. 1 and 2) So, you’ve read a little about counselor identity and professional organizations.
Take note, that both the American Mental Health Counselors Association (AMHCA) and the American School Counseling Association (ASCA) have dis-affiliated with the American Counseling Association (however, many members of each organization hold dual membership)
. You are entering an education program that trains both mental health and school counselors.
Speak to the following:
What do you know about the roles of mental health counselors and professional school counselors?
How are these jobs similar or different?
How does the identity of the counseling profession carry through to the two professional pathways?
